Magic: the Gathering Standard Series Win-A-Box

In case you missed it, we leveled up with the Wizards Play Network (WPN) last week. This means we will able to run Friday Night Magic, prereleases, and request special products like Modern Masters 2017! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped us achieve Core status so quickly, despite all the snow and ice.

To show our appreciation, we’re going to have a 9-week Standard Series* of events for which we will track Planeswalker point totals for all participants. Beginning February 15th, and running through April 16th, we will host our Magic: the Gathering Standard Series on Wednesdays and Sundays with prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place of the series**:

  • 1st Place Prize will be a booster box of Amonkhet, to be awarded on April 28th
  • 2nd Place Prize will be an Amonkhet bundle, to be awarded on April 28th
  • 3rd Place Prize will be entry into an Amonkhet pre-release event

Over this 9 week period, a total of 17 Standard events will make up the Standard Series.

Points will be calculated based on total for the series – 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss. We’ll post standings in the store each week.

Entry fee for each individual event will be $6.00. Normal prize support of 1.5 Standard packs per player will be awarded at each of the 17 events.

If we are able to get at least 15 of these events to fire, there will be some additional promo land cards to hand out to some of the participants at the end of the series. The number of promo land cards will depend upon our WPN status at the end of the series.

 

*A Standard legal deck is required to participate:

**In the event of a tie for any of the top 3 places, there will be a playoff

Posting events….

We’ve had quite a few questions regarding our events schedule. While we continue to hash it out I’ve decided to go ahead and put some on the calendar for the next week or so. What we have up there so far include D&D, Magic, and board games with more things to come.

Several people have also asked about reserving space for their own games. We should have plenty of space for this, so feel free to email us (runeandboard@gmail.com) to reserve a table.

Hope to see you soon!
